Paris was the original inspiration for the Fashionista Collection designed by Tom Clancy. On a trip there with his daughter Veronica, they discovered “art bags.” With simple designs that featured sketches, these bags were everywhere from flea markets to high-end boutiques. Tom’s own versions with lively colors and luxurious materials combined with sketchbook art reflecting a passion for fashion and travel have made these collectors’ pieces a favorite since 2011. Each season, art meets fashion in a new way with these collections.
The Fashionista Collection was first launched in June, 2011 with fresh-from-the-runway inspirations. By August, 2011, our fashionista’s next vacation was just a handbag away! Over the years, each season’s new artful designs underwent a stylish evolution – from color-blocking and leopard prints to haute pops of RED and graphic illustrations that put the woman who carried them onto the cover of her own fashion magazine. Seven years later, the legend continues…
Onto the next Just like the chic women who wear them, the Fashionista pieces continue to evolve as styles change. Tom’s artful and imaginative designs encompass everything from cartoon drawings to fine art – allowing him to express many different feelings and moods. From appliques on leather to painted porcelain– the sky’s the limit!
LOVE STORY COLLECTION
The Love Story Collection by our designer Tom Clancy continues into its second season – inspired by pop art and celebrating color, modern art and the word “love.” There is something for everyone among these accessories with romantic roses, hearts, flowers and other upbeat motifs.
LOVE GROOVE COLLECTION
For the Love Groove Collection, Tom Clancy took inspiration from the 1970s – when the expression of graphic arts was at its height. Those bold colors and abstract patterns celebrated in his exclusive artwork reflect details we are seeing again on today’s runways. Vintage is the new modern!
While in the mood to create “something different” for his love-themed accessories, Tom found a plate that he had designed three years ago. All the graphic elements were reflective of the trends we are just now seeing from the runways of Europe. The forward-thinking images he painted then are so right for right now, that Tom was inspired to interpret them in these exciting new pieces.
Everything Tom Clancy designs for his Fashionista collections emphatically broadcast, "I LOVE FASHION!" His newest pieces are no exception, depicting a chic girl's day in the fashion capital of the U.S.—New York.
DOWN TOWN GIRLS COLLECTION Style is the way we all tell the world who we are... and these sensational "art" handbags replicating Tom's hand drawings continue to be display showpieces for worldly-chic women everywhere. Among these designs, his newest pieces depict a girl's day spent in New York, and colorful sketches of his friends are scattered all around the artwork.
The Fashionista collector doesn’t want to blend in, she wants to live a colorful life. With the juxtaposition of graphic elements on Tom’s quickly hand-sketched accessories that play out on ultra-soft leather, every woman who wears them will be a standout!
